Overlapping Colors Wedding Card Revisited

Going back to 2015 on this blog, I came across this card and I still really love it. The soft colors of Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate are just so beautiful together. The hint is to stamp Blushing Bride first, then stamp Smoky Slate on top. That creates beautiful overlapping colors.

Photopolymer stamps were still pretty new back in 2015, The text I copied from the old blog post below shows just how far we've come with photopolymer stamps. Like now we know to be very careful when mounting solid stamps to the clear blocks, so no bubbles are created between the stamp and block. 

We also know to hold the inked stamp in place and let the ink absorb into the cardstock. 

But the best thing that has been invented since then is the Stamparatus! That precision stamping platform lets you stamp the stamp image over and over until you get it the way you wanted.

Amy Kunkle designed this lovely card and even provided a stamping video to teach how to get really clean and solid stamped images with the photopolymer balloon stamps that come in the Celebrate Today set with coordinating Framelits. Her word balloon was attached to the lower right corner but I had a little "boo-boo" so my balloon had to go in the upper left area. The card is super simple once you get the inking technique down. Colors are Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate on Whisper White. I used a non - SU baker's twine in gray and white and tied it around the balloon then added two dots of liquid tombow glue to barely hold the string in place.


So what do you think about this overlapping technique? You could still do it with any stamped shape image and two coordinating ink colors. I suppose you could even go for a multicolored effect with many inks.  Give them both a try with any shape stamp you have in your stash.

Happy Creating!
